Ashtanga–Mysore Style

Mysore style practice is the
self-paced, traditional forum and cornerstone for studying Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga.

We offer it as we were taught by Sri. K Pattabhi Jois and Richard Freeman. No experience with the series is necessary and beginning students are always welcome.

Our approach to the practice is inviting and personalized. Practitioners arrive anytime during the class period and practice for as little or as long as they like, but are encouraged to build endurance so that a one to two hour sequence becomes routine. The teacher moves around the room and practitioners are supported by the teacher individually. Beginners and those with a therapeutic self-practice welcome. If you are a new student, please check in with the teacher upon arrival.


During the week that Leigha Nicole is in town, the Introductory Offer for new students will NOT apply to Mysore classes. If you plan to study with Leigha for her week long Immersion, but do not plan to return to The Mindful Body, we have created a special week long unlimited Yoga pass for you, at a cost of $89.

2017 Mysore Moon Days

At The Mindful Body, we observe the full and new moon days as rest days, where no formal practice is offered. Practitioners are encouraged to use this time for reflection and study.

*We will still hold Friday Led Ashtanga, when it falls on a Moon Day.
